Popularity GeneratorNote: Some Character Physical Forms have pregenerated Popularity; Others may have modifiers to their Popularity stated on their description.
The following guidelines should be used in generating a Character's Popularity:Initial Popularity is 10 for most heroes(unless otherwise stated), 0 for Random Mutants and Robots.The Judge may leave it at that, or may raise or lower initial Popularity by the following factors:Heroes may start with negative Popularity. Using this negative Popularity may result in loss of Karma. A Secret ID may never start with negative Popularity.
- Raise Popularity by 10 if identity is publicly known.
- Lower Popularity by 5 if identity is secret.
- Lower Popularity by 5 if hero hangs out with known Random Mutants, but is not a Random Mutants.
- Lower Popularity by 5 if hero is generally unpopular (aliens have this trouble, but a player may choose to have his hero be ugly)
After Generating the Character's Popularity, move on to the next step.
